Tony Linkson

Tony Linkson originally trained in Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins and worked in design, direction and branding for many years, beginning at the visual execution end of the industry and ultimately running teams as a creative director. His psychotherapy training at Spectrum dovetailed with his brand consultancy projects and he found his core interest in the strategies behind visual expressions, increasingly working with brands and organisations (and the people inside them) to identify their essence and help them shape their behaviours accordingly, empowering them to communicate clearly and effectively. He now works as a psychotherapist – with people from all walks of life, and as a coach – primarily with creatives and artists of various kinds. He also writes about therapy and creativity.
